Bit of a cult boat. Was high on my list as it has huge water tanks and is very strongly built. I must have looked at a dozen mostly in Florida and some were as high as 130k. Many are ex charter and will have high engine hours if they still have the original Perkins. The engine driven refrigeration suited charter use but is likely to have been replaced if not it will be on it's last legs. Slow and comfortable cuiser.

Chain plates are an issue and if have not been replaced should be at least pulled and inspected.

The bottom part of the keel on the deep draft version can be cut off if a shollow draft is desired.

The walk thru is consided more desirable than the walk over.
